Golden Gate/X̱áat Yádi Aani Conservancy was established as a result of the Wóoshtin Wudidaa Atlin Taku Land Use Plan and Taku River Tlingit First Nation Strategic Engagement Agreement.
The conservancy is a high value Tlingit landscape that includes important cultural and recreational features in the islands, bays and shoreline at the junction of Tagish Lake and Graham Inlet. The Tlingit name (X̱áat Yádi Aani) refers to a village located close to the place where humpback whitefish congregated.
The conservancy is located approximately 35 kilometres northwest from Atlin in the asserted traditional territory of the Taku River Tlingit and Carcross/Tagish First Nations.
This site is under construction; more information on this conservancy will be added when it becomes available.
